Why do we have a PTA?

We are very fortunate at our school to have a PTA that is, and has been, such an integral part of the school community for many years.  In its time, the PTA has raised many thousands of pounds, which have been spent on improving equipment and resources to enhance our children’s education and the facilities in school.

But it is much more than just fundraising!  The PTA exists to provide closer links between home and school, and it is an excellent way to bring staff, parents and friends together socially and in support of the school.

All parents and members of the school community can get involved even if they only have a small amount of time available.  All parents are automatically members of the association when they join our school.

How do we raise money?

As in most schools, the majority of our funds are raised through the events that we run.  Some of our recent events have included the Summer Fete, a Ladies’ Pamper Evening, quiz nights, children’s discos, film clubs and cake stalls.

So you can see, there is always something going on!  We always try and respond to the children’s requests for events and it is wonderful to see them having fun at the events or enjoying new equipment that the PTA has donated.

How have we spent the money we have raised?

The PTA has recently funded the purchase of playground equipment for both the Junior and Infant playgrounds, as well as all-weather sheds to store it in.  This term, the PTA has subsidised visits from a planetarium (supporting the infants in their topic ‘Space and Planets’), and from The Storyteller, Paul Jackson, during Book Week.

The PTA have helped to find the redevelopment of one of our outdoor play areas.  An exciting outdoor area has been built to engage our children in active learning.  The area includes an outdoor classroom, treetop walkway, slide, sand pit, and an outdoor learning area for our Nursery children.  More pictures will be added to the site after the grand unveiling of the area!

In September 2017, the PTA organised the Poringland Colour Run.

Before the race, entrants were led in a warm up by Zumba Kat.  They then embarked upon a 5km course around the Playing Field and the School Grounds.  Lots of money was raised for charity by the individual runners, as well as approximately £700 by the PTA!
